Fall wreathes are a favorite because there is so much versatility between the colors of autumn, Halloween, and Thanksgiving. We love this one because of the simple crocheted accents and artsy design only covering about half of the wreath with the crocheted leaves and acorns. This is a great project for a beginner, and creates a nice-sized 12-inch wreath that you’ll be proud to display on your front door.

Autumn brings plenty of excuses for changing up the decor in your house you have to follow the color scheme of oranges, reds, and gold, right? and this sign is a neat decoration to have on hand. With a cute little orange pumpkin to serve as the “love,” it’s perfect for a foyer or even as a gift for someone who loves the season. And if you have some scrap yarn on hand, it’s actually a great way to use that, too.

A neat decoration to have hanging on the wall or as a centerpiece on the table, this corn also known as “flint corn” really speaks to the season. And because the “kernels” aren’t supposed to be uniform, you can use a lot of different yarn colors to complete this project. Everything from the husks to the cobs is done with crochet, and the finished project really screams “fall.”
